Swamped with your writing assignments? Take the weight off your shoulder!
Practicing the art of interviewing is never a worthless task. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics recently reported that young adults born in the early 1980s have held, on average, 8.2 jobs between the ages of 18-32. This means, of course, it is likely that you, too, will jump around a bit between jobs in your early adulthood. Thus, it would be wise for you to stay sharp in your interviewing skills. This assignment aims to support you in practicing your interviewing skills, based on your future interests.
Informational/Mock Interview for Known Career Trajectory: This option assumes that you already have a career you want to stay in or have a clear idea of a career you would like to be in. Even if you are already with a company or in an industry you plan on being in long term, hopefully upward mobility/promotion is in your sights. For this interview, youâ€™ll be practicing your interviewing skills for the purpose of keeping those skills sharp.
The most meaningful way to execute this would be to find someone in that line of work to interview, or someone with more experience/in a higher position than you in that line of work. This interview would be treated like an informational interviewâ€¦where you would find out â€˜how did they get there, what skills for mobility are necessary, what are challenges, etc.â€™ To me, this has the most direct application to either get into the career field of your choice or to increase upward mobility in current career.
I would like to pursue a job in a sales industry such as software sales or Medical sales.
